The blog post, “Does Your Landscape Work?” by The Dirt’s editor Jared Green, highlights the importance of landscape commissioning, the topic of a panel moderated by Reed Hilderbrand Principal Eric Kramer at the 2015 ASLA Annual Meeting.

Kramer argues for an “industry-wide discussion,” to establish new performance standards that are continuously measured and verified over time. He uses Reed Hilderbrand’s work at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA, as a case study, where a commissioning agent helped fix reoccurring issues and effectively measure landscape performance.
